So, you want to quit the 9 to 5 grind and become a PADI Divemaster? Here are some things to keep in mind:
- It is Challenging. While fun is part of the job, being a divemaster means you must be familiar with a wide range of subjects: marine science, oceanography, physics, physiology, physical, education, mechanics, public relations and psychology.
- People Skills are a Must. You’ll be dealing with a wide range of personalities and temperaments.
- Willingness to Work Long and Irregular Hours. This includes weekends and holiday.
- People put their safety and lives in your hands.
